"Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" Grandson Andre Montgomery Fatally Shot in St. Louis

One of my favorite programs on OWN is called "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's." It features Miss Robbie (AKA Robbie Montgomery), her family, and their chain of soul food restaurants. One member of her family, 21-year-old grandson Andre Montgomery, was shot and killed Monday night.

According to TMZ:
21-year-old Andre Montgomery was found in a house, unconscious with a gunshot wound Monday night. Police say he was pronounced dead on the scene ... and at this point there's no suspect. 
Miss Robbie tells TMZ ... the house where Andre was shot had a recording studio, and he was laying down a rap. She's been told that during the recording session, Andre got a phone call to meet someone outside, and when he went out ... that's when he got shot. 

Miss Robbie says there is one strong lead in the case -- Andre was staying in a hotel, and on Tuesday morning someone used a key to enter the room. She says Andre's belongings were missing from the room ... but the person who went in was captured on surveillance cameras.
Andre appeared occasionally on the program, though not as regularly as other family members.
